Visited Bambleshwari Mata Temple on 24 Feb 2020. It was in my mind to visit here since long. But it is rightly said " जब तक माँ बुलाती नहीं दर्शन होते नहीं ".
So while returning from Maihar on 23.2.20 (Review submitted), it clicked in my mind to visit Dongargad. Though I have reservation upto Ballarshah,I get down in Nagpur Railway Station at 2.30 am. Got the General Superfast ticket upto Dongargad.
There are more frequency to Dongargad or Rajnandgaon (31 kms from Dongar gad) from Nagpur. Chattisgarh Express runs daily. Got it at 3.30 am. Reached Dongargad at 7.15am. As it was Monday, there was no rush. Got a single room booked. Took bath. And left for Temple.
I decided to go through steps while climbing. It is same more or less as Maihar. You should take your time to climb up because everyone has different physical capacity and stamina. I took 1 hour to climb.
Got very nice Darshan.
Just aside the Temple, there is nice spot to relax n take photos. Many devotees make there wishes at the Temple. While returning down, I took cable car as was in Maihar. In 30Rs and 5 min, I was on ground. Went to hotel, checked out at 12 pm. Took Azad Hind Express at 1 pm from Dongargad and reached Nagpur at 4.15 pm.
Feeling very blessed. Hope other Devotees will find this helpful and get nice Darshan of Mata Rani. Jai Mata Di.

I have been visiting bambleshwari mata temple in dongargarh since childhood. It is nearly 100 kms from Raipur. The temple has more than 1000 stairs to climb before one reaches the sanctum. There is also a ropeway which can be used to reach the sanctum. Temple remains closed from 1 pm to 3 pm. There is also a small bambleshwari temple once to come down from the sanctum. Divine and pious.

Its my home town so I love this place and know more than any one else. Its not only famous for Maa bamleshwari Temple in top of the 900ft high hill but also several other places like.. Lord Buddha statue.. Tapsvi temple.. Chhoti maa bamleshwari temple.. And few near by dams with beautiful location.
So you can enjoy vacation.. But must use Roadway service for hill temple..if you want to save energy for all sight seems.

A great Divine Pilgrimage Temple
Oct 2018 • Friends
This is a Devi Temple and flooded with devotees in Navratra and litttle at holidays.This is about 200 km from nagpur and 100 km from raipur and 1 hr from gondia.We reached here at 5.45 by train from amarkantak and immediately rushed to devi mandir by autoriksha at about 6 p.m.There are two options to climb the steps or to go by rope way charging 50 rs one way.and 100 rs to and fro.For aged persons the ropeway is ideal.However, even going by ropeway one has to climb about 100 stiff steps.I had to sit and rest for sometime being b.p. patient.Heart patient should avoid.So keep in mind that you do not go direct to the feet of temple.The devi idol is great and the lower hill view is awsome.Since we reached in the evening we could not enjoy dongar(hill) beuty much.

A very divine and attractive place for a day long trip
Oct 2017 • Friends
A divine place in Rajnandgaon dist. of Chattishgarh ,almost on border part of Chattishgarh and Maharashtra,(100 km form Raipur and 200Km from Nagpur) easily reachable from Nagpur by number of trains( just make confirm the stoppage of selected train at Dongargarh rly station). The temples of Maa Bamblehwari (badi and choti Bambleshwari) and Buddha statue at hill pragyagiri (on opp hill of Badi Bamblehswari temple hill) are beautiful and peaceful places to visit.One can take an auto to pragyairi hill from station ( a big beautiful statue of buddha at hill ,about 225 steps to climb) the same auto will drop you to Badi Bambleshwari temple at reasonable fare . Badi Bambleshwari temple can be reached easily by walking from rly. station. You can reach to temple on hill either by using the 1000+ steps or by taking the cable car/rope way( fare and time required for your turn, depends on the rush and days/season,like- public holidays, navratri ,vacations).climbing steps is also not much tiring as they are well constructed and at proper distance and slop, and are covered by sheds. while taking cable car also people have to climb some steps. plz. check availability of meal(mahaprasad) on temple side at reasonable coupons.
Choti Bambleshwari devi temple at ground level is nr. about 1 km away from this.This temple is very beautiful in architecture and peaceful and spacious place to visit.Food shops are not much available here. From here one can go back to rly station or to bus stand , by 15/20 min walk, through the very rich,good and attractive market of Dongargarh. From bus stand frequent busses are available for 'Chichola'(20 km,30/40mins) from where the busses to Rajnandgaon, Bhandara and Nagpur are available.
Edibles and food are available at ground level and on road side of Badi Bambleshwari temple area, around Rly station and in Dongargarh market area .Quite clean and cheap hotels and restaurants with mild and tasty vegetarian refreshments and food is available in Dongargarh. For accommodation lodges and hotels are also available very reasonable charges.
In short,one can enjoy comfortable, relaxing and economical a day long trip by visit to all these three places including photography of natural beauty from the hills, some shopping and food.
